Yipee! I just got my first egg and in the nest box too! What a Chicken!!!!!!!!!! She is a Delaware and is 20 weeks old exactly today! D I will add photos of "the egg" tomorrow! Question though! She pushed away all the shavings and laid the egg on the wooden bottom. I did not have a wooden egg in the box she laid the egg in so I put some of the shavings back in the bottom under the "egg" ( I feel like removing it and bronzing it) and left the egg hoping that the other 4 girls will follow her and lay some eggs tomorrow since there was already an egg in the nest. Is it normal for them to lay eggs on wood? Regardless, I am just ecstatic that she had the egg in the box. I just finished the nest boxes yesterday. I was planning on getting some wooden eggs this week. I think I still will so they will always know where to lay the eggs.
